Kienholz on Exhibit


Published 1969
Topics art, los angeles


Born in 1927 in the border area between Washington and Idaho, Kienholz moved to Los Angeles in 1953, where he began making a series of bas-reliefs with found material. Prior to his death in 1994, he was primarily known for his "Assembly Art" sculptures, consisting of mannequins, stuffed animals, and pieces of clothing, focusing on subjects such as controversial as bordellos, back seat sex, and abortion. Steel’s extremely entertaining film consists of audience reactions to a Kienholz exhibit at the LA County Museum of Art, which includes his well-known pieces ‘"The Birthday’, ‘Back Seat Dodge’, and ‘Roxy's’.

Subject: great vid, but i'm not into the "art"
not sure doing "creative" things like simulating degredation of women is all that, personally. but art is subjective.

i'll stick to to Andres Serrano, Robert Rauschenberg, and Chuck Close... ;-)

This documentary on a great Pop Artist and his art is fantastic! It makes you feel as if you are there...as it's happening. If you are a fan of Edward Kienholz, you must see this film!
